1ST FRIDAY @ GALERIA WEST Music Concert Series with Vocalist CARLA VIROLA & FRIENDS in Concert
The popular 1ST FRIDAY @ GALERIA WEST music concert series continues with an evening of Latin music favorites and more with accomplished vocalist Carla Virola & Friends in concert as they take the stage at the wonderfully intimate Galeria West Art & Music Gallery in quaint downtown Westfield, NJ.
Vocalist, pianist and dance artist Carla Virola was born in East Harlem in New York City to Puerto Rican parents, Carla quickly picked up her music skills from her dad. Educated at the LaGuardia School of the Arts and then the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, Carla has had vast experience on her creative side. Appearing on popular TV soaps (As The World Turns, One Life to Live) and SNL, she quickly got a taste of what she wanted to do in life.
Musically, she and her sister stepped out with their first duo effort and were pre-nominated for Grammy's in several categories as well as being written up in Billboard Magazine.
Carla performs and writes all of her music and continues to pursue her acting career. She recently appeared as a principal actress and VO actor on a Channel 7 Eyewitness News Promo spot, as well as an XFinity commercial, a Lupus PSA and her most recent commercial for a As Seen on TV segment.
Whether you catch her on TV or on the airwaves, be sure to show your love and support for this Latina Diva who is a star on the rise.
Carla is joined this evening in concert by accomplished music artists, Joe Biondo on piano and David Clive on drums.
May we suggest that you plan to enjoy a delicious dinner or dessert before or after the show at one of several fine dining establishments in downtown Westfield and the surrounding area. Most are within walking distance from Galeria West.
Event proceeds benefit in part programming efforts at TEATRO Si, a 501(c)3 not for profit NJ corporation.
